Subject: [Caml-list] ocamlnet-0.93 released
Hi list,

I have recently released a new version of ocamlnet that includes all changes
since February. The list of changes is attached below.

What is ocamlnet?

A collection of modules for the Objective Caml language which focus on 
application-level Internet protocols and conventions.

The current distribution contains:

- a mature implementation of the CGI protocol

- an implementation of the JSERV protocol (AJP-1.2), can be used with
  mod_jserv (Apache JServ) and mod_jk (Jakarta connector) to connect
  application servers written in O'Caml with web servers

- an experimental POP3 client

- a library of string processing functions related to Internet 
  protocols (formerly known as "netstring" and distributed separately):
  MIME encoding/decoding, Date/time parsing, Character encoding
  conversion, HTML parsing and printing, URL parsing and printing,
  OO-representation of channels, and a lot more.

Ocamlnet is developed as a SourceForge project:

Developers and code contributions are welcome.

Ocamlnet is licensed under the zlib/libpng license.

Where can I download the sources?

You NEED the PCRE library as prerequisite, and findlib is recommended
(but not required).

Changes between 0.92 and 0.93:

Netbuffer: Large buffers are better supported, especially on 32 bit

Netconversion/Netmappings_*: Added ISO-8859-16. There is now an intermediate
format for netmappings that does not depend on the current O'Caml version.
There is now a pipeline class for character conversion. `Enc_subset is

Netencoding: Html.encode and Html.decode are now available for other encodings
than ISO-8859-1.

Nethtml: encode and decode are now available for other encodings
than ISO-8859-1. The HTML parser can cope with such other encodings,
too, provided that they are ASCII-compatible.

Netmime: The ~strip argument is available again.

Netstream: The interpretation of the ~len argument of the class input_stream
has been fixed.

Netstring_pcre: Fixed bounded_split and split.

Netcgi_jserv: Works now under mod_jk, too. Support for the `Process_pool
model (pool of preforked processes)
